I was skeptical at first about the announced date for Pharoahe Monch’s forthcoming third solo album, W.A.R. (We Are Renegades), which is set to drop March 22. But can you blame? I mean, all you have to do is consider his unfortunate track record of endless delays surrounding his solo work. With interviews like the above with XXL, it’s looking like we really will be getting W.A.R. in less than two weeks. During his chat, Monch speaks on a number of topics, from his upbringing to his new record to meeting the Notorious B.I.G. Before they met, apparently Biggie, a fellow asthmatic, made it clear that he loved Monch’s style. Can’t say I blame him.
